Ragworm is the preferred bait where I fish for Bass & used by everyone...But I have NEVER got them on rag. Sandeel or peeler has been successful for me, and I have also seen them taken on Mackerel and blueys.

Generally I use lugworm or frozen sandeel. Live sandeel (if you can get it) is deadly. Have tried live prawn under a float...with only a little success. Pesky Wrasse!

Fresh lug, razor, softback/peeler crab, squid, mackerel, etc. Most of them work on their day round here. I always like to use what sort of bait is in the area I'm fishing in if I can. :thumbs:
